Janice's review for another Sundowners Overland tour
“I had heard about this trip and was looking for a trip that was a little different to others I have done. The trip was above and beyond any expectations I had. Our tour leader and local guides were amazing and gave us a experience of a life time. I would recommend this trip with Sundowners. A trip to remember.”
